Facebook has every intention to give its Stories section a much-needed face lift. Soon it will be possible to double-post your Instagram stories directly to Facebook while within the Instagram app according to prior claims by Next Webs Matt Navarra and Twitter user @mruiandre. These reports have so far been confirmed by Instagram as a new feature test.
Earlier this year Facebook rolled out its version of Stories to flip its fortunes, but this new feature is just not clicking on its users and therefore not going as planned. However, this is a welcome challenge considering that most Instagram users are more than willing to post photos and video updates on the photo-sharing app which boasts an astonishing 250 million stories users daily. Such tempting figures could set-up Facebook in a right way and avoid burning its fingers by ingeniously blending Instagram content into Facebook.
It is admirable how much Instagram has strived to disguise itself from the parent company and thus gaining much acclaim amongst its loyal users. Since 2012, when Instagram was bought by Facebook they have managed to keep a separate line, but that seems to change soon if the two companies succeed in intermixing content between the apps. It has been a one-way affair with Instagram users being able to post photos and videos directly to their Facebook News Feeds, and not the other way till now.
Stories are on fire and are spreading fast across Snapchat and Instagram, highlighting the fact that Instagram stories dwarf all other normal Instagram post. However, with the popularity of Instagram Stories growing by the day, Snapchat has gone under keeping in mind that the latter feature was their invention and was only added to Instagram in August 2016. To take advantage of this lucrative opportunity, it seems an obvious move for Facebook to embed this new feature into their app as well as providing a full suite of money-making apps.
